The GreEnergy consortium comprises eight partners including four top-level universities, one research centre and three specialized SMEs, coming from six different countries, namely Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Israel, Italy and Finland.

In GreEnergy, the industry partners are crucial for ensuring the industrial relevance of the technology development and for the commercial exploitation of the project results, while the research and academic partners will target breakthrough innovations and demonstrate the viability of the GreEnergy technology. This well-balanced cluster of enterprises and institutions works together to achieve the project objectives, i.e. to demonstrate a prototype achieving 20-40% efficiency for the integrated components at a system cost below €100 per 1 m2.

Chalmers University of Technology:

Within Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers), the research activities of the electronics materials and systems laboratory (EMSL) focus on microsupercapacitor (MSC) technologies which can be integrated on-chip in CMOS compatible processes. The group has unique experience in high temperature and thermal stability of MSCs, vibrational and thermal energy harvesting as well as integrated power management circuitry for self-powering systems. As the GreEnergy project coordinator, Chalmers will contribute their expertise to the development of the energy storage unit (MSC component), the process for on-chip integration of antenna/rectifier with power management unit and energy storage device. Chalmers will also be in charge of demonstrating and benchmarking the prototype of the integrated system.
